We’ve got a special election day treat for you. New York’s awesomely bearded, delightfully absurd gubernatorial candidate Jimmy McMillan, founder of the Rent Is Too Damn High Party, has released a soul album today. The record is fittingly entitled The Rent Is Too DAMN High (Volume One), and yes, the songs are, indeed, about the rent being too damn high. Now McMillan doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of winning today’s election, but shenanigans like these show that at least a few folks in politics are starting to get the meme game. The Rent Is Too DAMN High (Volume One)* is out digitally today, with a physical release coming Dec. 7, by which time McMillan’s unlikely star power will surely have faded.
* Dear God, please, no volume two!
